School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation

The School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation (SEI) aims to promote entrepreneurial inclination of university students, through training sessions in the classroom, operational experience in the world of innovative companies/startups and testimonials of entrepreneurs, investors and professionals.

The school aims to favour the starting of new entrepreneurial activities and helps students acquire skills such as proactivity, resourcefulness, ability to work in teams and assumption of responsibility: fundamental qualities not only for every aspiring entrepreneur, but also – in general – for those who are preparing to take their first steps into the world of work.

The training of SEI enables for learning the basics of creating a business plan, in becoming familiar with advanced technologies and to gain a vision of the main innovations that will impact our society in the near future. Participation in SEI programs is completely free and sponsored for the students, thanks to the contribution from the partners involved.

Each module offered by the School has three fundamental characteristics: internationality, interdisciplinarity and action learning.

The School has both Italian and international trainers, with relevant experiences in the field of entrepreneurship and/or innovation, gained in different industrial sectors and geographical contexts. The contents of each module are designed based on knowledge gained from the best entrepreneurial training programs across Europe.

The School is aimed at students from the various faculties of both the main universities in the region. By engaging young people with different training paths and backgrounds, SEI intends to favour the formation of working teams with different skills: a factor that often proves decisive for the success of many new businesses.

The educational model on which the School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation is founded upon is action learning, which focuses on the direct experience of starting and running a business as a privileged means of learning. More than studying entrepreneurship, SEI students are called upon to experience it in the first person, launching their start-up or working on innovative projects. The School also brings students in direct contact with entrepreneurs and professionals, so that they can learn from their successes as well as from the mistakes made.

The SEI training proposal stems from collaboration between the public and private subjects that animate the local entrepreneurial and educational ecosystem and compliments the existing university educational programs; in some cases, thanks to the agreements signed with the Politecnico di Torino and the Università di Torino, the attendance to SEIs’ modules also allows the students to earn recognized curricular credits needed for obtaining their degrees.

School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation is a project promoted by Foundation Agnelli and realized by Collège des Ingénieurs Italia in collaboration with UniCredit, Club degli Investitori, Camera di Commercio, Industria, Artigianato e Agricoltura di Torino, Gruppo Giovani Imprenditori dell’Unione Industriale di Torino, Politecnico di Torino and Università di Torino.
